The Can Caravan – When Janie’s neighbour Mrs Tolen goes into hospital with a broken hip, it looks as though she will have to move out of her old caravan and into a house. Janie is desperate to help, but all seems lost until her school visits a local recycling plant. All it takes from there is imagination, a supportive community, and lots and lots of hard work to transform Mrs Tolen’s old caravan into a safe and secure new home. The latest picture book by renowned Romani storyteller Richard O’Neill celebrates the traditional Traveller virtues of resilience, adaptability, loyalty and independence.

This beautifully illustrated and colourful children’s book explores themes of health and well-being, culture and identity, community collaboration, and recycling, through the lens of the Travelling Community.  

Suited to preschoolers and older children, this book explores Janie’s commitment to supporting her neighbour with creative thinking and community spirit. In doing so, she helps her to return to living in her caravan safely, continuing with cultural traditions and values.   

The Can Caravan offers opportunities for further discussions on diversity, identity, inclusion, home and family.
